At the Nima New Town residence of Justice Adzakumah, Nana Akufo-Addo explained that after being informed of the unfortunate events of September 16, whilst on the “Rise and Build Tour” of the Upper East Region, and what had happened to Justice, in particular, he made it a point to visit him on his return to Accra.

The NPP flagbearer expressed his deepest sympathies to Justice and his family, who, he said, had sacrificed so much for the common cause of Ghana.

“You have joined a long line of Ghanaian patriots who have had to sacrifice to get us where we are now. There is a long line of people who, like you, spilled their blood for our country. One day when we are mentioning the names of Ghanaian freedom fighters and democrats, they will mention your name. You made a huge sacrifice for our nation,” Nana Akufo-Addo noted.

He indicated that he remained unperturbed by what had happened, because he believed that what he and the thousands of Ghanaians, who turned up at the September 16 demonstration, are fighting for is the safeguarding of Ghana’s democracy through the conduct of credible elections.`

Also present at Justice Adzakumah’s residence were David Asante, Convener of the Let My Vote Count Alliance, and Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, former Executive Director of the Danquah Institute, who also sustained injuries at the demonstration.

Nana Akufo-Addo was accompanied by Saratu Atta, his Executive Assistant, another victim of the police brutality at the demonstration; Eugene Arhin, Press Secretary; and Iddrisu Musah ‘Superior’, his Campaign Aide.
